ACTS 13:40-41 – Beware therefore, lest what has been spoken in the prophets come upon you: ‘Behold, you despisers, Marvel and perish! For I work a work in your days, a work which you will by no means believe, though one were to declare it to you.’
SINCE THE FOUNDATION OF TIME, GOD HAS DECLARED THE END FROM THE BEGINNING. JESUS IS THE ALPHA AND HE IS THE OMEGA (REVELATION 1:8). NO MAN, PRINCIPALITY, NOR POWER, NOR RULER OF DARKNESS, NOR NEPHILIM CAN STOP THE MOVE OF GOD.
NOTHING CAN COMPARE TO THE HAND OF GOD WHO HOLDS THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE AT HIS COMMAND. GOD IS SOVEREIGN. HE IS HOLY. AND HE WILL DEFEND HIS PEOPLE. EVEN THE VERY HAIRS OF YOUR HEAD ARE NUMBERED (MATTHEW 10:30). YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY IS AS STRONG AND SURE AS THE FOUNDATION OF THIS EARTH. JESUS IS OUR KING, OUR MESSIAH, AND THE ROCK ON WHICH WE STAND FOR WE DO WHAT HE SAYS.
WHILE WE ARE THOSE WHO LOVE GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS, MIND, SOUL, AND STRENGTH, THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST IS THIS – THAT GOD DESIRES TO DO A WORK IN AND AMONG THE PEOPLE WE ASSEMBLE WITH IN OUR MIDST.
WHETHER THESE ARE CONGREGATIONS, ASSEMBLIES, HOME GROUPS AND FELLOWSHIPS OF EVEN JUST 2 OR 3 PEOPLE, ALL THOSE WHO ARE GATHERING TOGETHER IN JESUS NAME WILL BE THE VICTORIOUS SAINTS CALLED TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GREAT WORK.
PERSECUTION IS COMING. DESPERATE AND DIFFICULT TIMES ARE COMING. THE ENEMY HAS DESIRED TO SIFT MANY OF GOD’S PEOPLE LIKE WHEAT. YET, AT THE VERY CORE OF WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST, IS THE CALL OF GOD IN IT’S FULLNESS, GLORY, AND ANOINTING THAT BREAKS EVERY YOKE AND ADVANCE GOD’S PLAN WHILE THWARTING THE POWER OF THE ENEMY.
THIS WORK OF THE LORD REQUIRES TENACITY. IT REQUIRES FOCUS. IT REQUIRES A DILIGENCE. AND IT REQUIRES UNITY.
LIKE IN THE BOOK OF ACTS, GOD’S PEOPLE CANNOT ACCOMPLISH WHAT GOD HAS DESIGNED WITHOUT A TEAM OF PEOPLE LIKE THE MINISTRY OF JESUS. THERE WERE 12 DISCIPLES, WHOM WERE NAMED APOSTLES NOT BY MEN, BUT THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH. FOR ONLY THOSE WHOM THE HOLY SPIRIT ANOINTS WILL RECEIVE THIS MANTLE PLACED IN THEIR MINISTRY FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
YET, BY THE SPIRIT, I KNOW THERE ARE SOME WHO HAVE TAKEN HOLD OF THESE THINGS OF GOD’S ELECT AND RAN WITH THEM. THESE ARE FAITHFUL WATCHMEN OF THE LORD WHO SEEK TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THE WILL OF THE FATHER FOR THIS VERY DAY, HOUR, AND SEASON AND DESIRE TO WALK WITH SUCH PRECISION BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD THAT EVERY STEP THEY TAKE IS SO ORDAINED OF GOD IT LITERALLY BREATHES LIFE INTO SITUATIONS MOST HAVE GIVEN UP ON DECADES AGO.
THIS WORK REQUIRES US TO KEEP ON THE ARMOR OF GOD DAILY. WE ARE PRAYING CONSTANTLY FOR THE SALVATION OF BILLIONS. AND NOT ONLY THIS, BUT THAT THE TRUE ETERNAL GOSPEL IS GOING INTO ALL THE EARTH AND THAT ALL ARE FOLLOWING JESUS CHRIST.
JESUS HAS BEEN WAITING FOR HIS BRIDE FOR MANY GENERATIONS, SINCE ETERNITY. HE SHOULD HAVE A GLORIUS BRIDE WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE (EPHESIANS 5:27; 1 TIMOTHY 6:14; 2 PETER 3:14).
AND THAT THIS LAST GENERATION ENTERING THE GATES OF HEAVEN AS THE PREPARED BRIDE OF JESUS WOULD BE SUCH A PEOPLE OF GOD THAT HEAVEN ITSELF HAS NEVER SEEN. A PEOPLE SO PURE IN HEART AND MIND AND SO HOLY ACCORDING TO GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT THEY NEVER NEED TO LEAVE THE THRONE ROOM OF GOD, BUT FILLED WITH ALL OF GOD HIMSELF WITH RIVERS OF LIVING WATER FLOWING FROM WITHIN THEM. THIS IS WHO WE ARE.
YET, WHILE THIS OUR MAIN MISSION, WE WILL BE AND CONTINUE BY GOD’S GRACE TO ADVANCE THE FRONT LINE OF GOD’S KINGDOM INTO AN ENTIRELY NEW LEVEL AND AUTHORITY THE ENEMY HAS NEVER SEEN. SATAN HAS BEEN EXPECTING ONE THING, BUT HE IS ABOUT TO SEE SOMETHING ALTOGETHER MUCH GREATER IN SCOPE AND CAPACITY THAT WILL CAUSE EVERY DEMON IN HELL TO TREMBLE.
OUR GOD IS RIGHTEOUS. OUR GOD IS LOVE. OUR GOD IS REVEALING HIS WILL TO ALL MEN – NOT ONLY TO REPENT AND FOLLOW JESUS, BUT ALSO TO LAY ASIDE THE AGENDA OF ALL MEN AND COME INTO THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT.
11 Now it came to pass, when Jesus finished commanding His twelve disciples, that He departed from there to teach and to preach in their cities.
2 And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples 3 and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?”
4 Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: 5 The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them.6 And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”
7 As they departed, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? 8 But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Indeed, those who wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses.
9 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet. 10 For this is he of whom it is written: ‘Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.’
11 “Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. 13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14 And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come. 15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
16 “But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their companions, 17 and saying: ‘We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not lament.’
18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified by her children.”
20 Then He began to rebuke the cities in which most of His mighty works had been done, because they did not repent: 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
22 But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you.”
25 At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. 26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight.
27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Ephesians 4:9-13 – The time is coming when all true believers and ministers in Christ are coming into the unity of the Faith
9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
2 Thessalonians 7:1-9 – We are those who have turned to the true and living God and obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
Ephesians 1 – We are chosen to be holy and without blame before Him in love as the victorious bride
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus: 2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.
7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
8 which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, 9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.
11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.
13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power
20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
Revelation 14:11-13 – We are those who keep the faith of Jesus and executing the commands of God, even as revealed through this website. These commands of God (Apostles Doctrine) are for all houses, ministries, and families of the Lord. We are the apostolic and prophetic timepiece that God has been waiting to release into the earth for such a day and time as this.
11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”
Romans 8:18-25 – God’s glory shall be revealed through us, for us and toward others until all the world knows the gospel of Jesus Christ
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
Daniel 12:1-4 – Many who are graced with the calling of this ministry and work of the Lord shall run to and fro, performing many of the commands and revealed truth of God’s word.
1“At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book.
2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3 Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever. 4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
Malachi 3:16-18 – We are the jewels of Jesus Christ Himself when He comes to the earth and is revealed.
16 Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, And the Lord listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the Lord And who meditate on His name.
17 “They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts. “On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them As a man spares his own son who serves him.” 18 Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, Between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.
I Corinthians 1:1-30 – You have been called into the fellowship of this mystery which God has made known by the revelation of His Holy Spirit for this time we are living in.
Yet, this call is not about whom God has made us to be. Rather, we are those who have learned to die daily, taking up our crosses daily to follow Jesus in all things.
This is the message of the cross which we as the ministers of God preach. To those who repent of their sin and follow Jesus Christ and seek the Kingdom of the Father – Christ is the author and perfector of our faith. He is our life. He is our glory. He is our wisdom. He is our expected end. We must be faithful to Him in all things and love not our lives even unto death.
And yet, He has given to us His more sure word of prophecy and mysteries contained in the scripture, His Holy Spirit who reveals the deep things of God to us, and ministers of the Spirit who by their diligent obedience to the leading and things of the Spirit and commands of God, are going from faith to faith and glory to glory and ministering to and equipping the saints to walk in every good work of God’s glorious kingdom.
1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours: 3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
4 I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, 5 that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, 6 even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, 7 so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, 8 who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
10 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
11 For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Christ.” 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 lest anyone should say that I had baptized in my own name. 16 Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas. Besides, I do not know whether I baptized any other.
17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.
18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,
24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. 27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; 28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, 29 that no flesh should glory in His presence.
30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— 31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”
